Man of Tai Chi trailer
Man of Tai Chi hits Berlin cinemas on March 13.
Fighting for the upkeep of his master’s temple and his own growth as a practitioner of Tai Chi, titular hero Chen is drawn into the underground fight ring of ruthless manipulator Donaka Mark (Reeves) intent upon corrupting Chen’s pure approach. Chen trained Reeves for The Matrix and this movie is also choreographed by Matrix action-master Yuen Woo-ping. So far, so good. It’s the acting and the script that brings these heroes to their knees.
Man of Tai Chi | Directed by Keanu Reeves (USA, China, Hong Kong 2013) with Keanu Reeves, Iko Uwais, Tiger Hu Chen. Starts March 13
